Did that really just happen? If this sticks, "Two and a Half Men" (Mon., 9:30 p.m. EST on CBS) just changed the dynamics of Alan's life forever. After Walden got overwhelmed and outvoted by Bridget and his mother, Zoey found a loophole in the company bylaws that would allow him to regain control.
He could add a fourth person to the board, and he gets any tie-breaking vote. Needing someone pathetic and willing to back his every decision, suddenly Alan Harper is on the board of a multi-million dollar company. He's not getting paid like one necessarily, but $50,000 a year is plenty for Alan to start fixing his life.
The biggest thing, though, was at the end when Walden gave Alan his name on the house. It doesn't look like the dynamics of the relationship or living arrangements will change either, but it's as if suddenly Walden is going to help Alan stand up at least a little bit on his own two feet. After eight-and-a-half seasons, that's almost unfathomable.
At least it was tempered by his accidentally setting his crotch on fire mere moments after seeing his name on the deed to the house. So at least he'll still be the Alan we know, loathe and love.
See how it all turns out for Alan on "Two and a Half Men" on Mondays at 9:30 p.m. EST on CBS.
